Load up on cuticle oil
Think cuticle oil is just for professional nail treatments? Think again. According to Tima it's the missing link in your post-mani care regime. 'Use it regulalry at home and you'll find it prolongs the life of your manicure as well as hydrating your cuticles.' Although your nail technician will always do this after your appointment, the moisturizing ingredients can quickly rub off and your newly painted nails will be at risk of drying out. '‘It’s wise to invest in a bottle to keep at home, and apply it liberally in the morning and before bed so it can fully soak into the nail and the benefits can take effect,’ explains Tima. Keeping nails topped up with cuticle oil will keep them strong and healthy, which in turn helps to avoid cracks and chipped polish’.
